QUINI 6 Tradicional
Quini 6 is a popular national lottery game played across Argentina.
Draws are held twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays at 21:30 local time.
To play Quini 6, choose six numbers between 0 and 45, or go for a Quick Pick for randomly generated numbers.
Quini 6 draws consist of four different games, with players choosing the same numbers for each.
The main draw is called Quini 6 Tradicional.
The next game is called Segunda Vuelta (second round). Segunda Vuelta has the same draw and prize structure as Tradicional, but with a starting jackpot of ARS 20 million.
Thirdly, there is Revancha (rematch). This game also has six drawn numbers, but has a single jackpot and no secondary prizes. If the Revancha jackpot is not won, it rolls over to the next draw.
The final game is called Siempre Sale (always goes out). This game is similar to Revancha, but if six numbers are not matched, the jackpot rolls down to five numbers, then four numbers, until there is a winner.
Players who match six or more numbers across the first three draws in Tradicional, Segunda Vuelta and Revancha win an equal share of the Pozo Extra fund.
Quini 6 has a minimum guaranteed jackpot of ARS 1.5 million; however, due to the volume of ticket sales, the starting jackpot is frequently far higher.
Quini 6 is a rollover lottery with no limit to the number of rollovers or the final value of the jackpot.
The biggest winning Quini 6 jackpot was ARS 207 million in September 2017.
